Creamy Tarragon Chicken Salad

This is a really easy, quick recipe that is perfect for summer.  It requires no heating up of your kitchen by cooking and would be easy to take along for a picnic.  We ate it with some whole-grain crackers but it would be equally delicious on croissants, crusty rolls, pita bread, or wrapped in lettuce.  I served it with steamed sugar snap peas (I will figure out how to attach a link to that recipe soon – still trying to figure out this whole blogging thing!) 

Creamy Tarragon Chicken Salad

Recipe adapted from Cooking Light magazine, April 2012 issue

1 c. plain fat free Greek yogurt
1 c. mayonnaise
2 tsp. dried tarragon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 rotisserie chicken, removed of skin and bones and shredded
1/4 c. thinly sliced red onion
1 c. red grapes, cut in halves or quarters
1/2 c. walnut chunks
whole-grain crackers

Combine first 5 ingredients, whisk until well blended.  Add chicken, onion, walnuts, and grapes.  Toss to combine.  If dry, add additional yogurt and mayonnaise.  Serve on crackers.

Husband Rating: 8.5 out of 10

Food for Thought: I don’t have any other thoughts on this… it was delicious!  Everyone in the family agreed.  It’s quick, easy, and something that you can have most of the ingredients on hand for.  You should definitely try this recipe!  🙂
